on the feds' bond buying program designed to lower interest rates and spur the economy. fox business network senior washington correspondent peter barns has an update. >> good evening. the fed says the central bank could be getting ready to wind down the easy money policies it has been using for the last five years to help the economy recover from the great recession, the first to slow and then to go, the controversial bond buying program, known as quantitative easing, which helped keep interest rates low. so far, the fed purchased $2.5 trillion in bonds to help flood the financial system with cash, basically printing new money. purchases help keep rates low for auto loans, mortgages and business loans. the fed chairman had cars on his mind when he said his team could start reducing purchases later this year, if the economy keeps growing and unemployment keeps dropping. >> if incoming data support that the economy can sustain a reasonable cruising speed, we will ease the pressure on the accelerator by gradually reducing pace of purchases. however, any need to consider applyi

misleading. no, look, iranians want to get rid of sanctions which have harmed the iranian economy. and one way of doing that, perhaps, is having a smooth negotiator who might help ease sanctions. but easing sanctions by coming to some sort of arrangement with the west does not mean an end to their nuclear program, and that's the supreme interest that we in the united states, all of us in the west have in making sure that this uniquely aggressive regime doesn't get nuclear weapons. so to bamboozle ourselves into thinking that rouhani is a figure who has authority and who will reach a modus vivendi with the united states, i think, is dangerously self-deceptive. and everyone is calling this guy a moderate. you know, there were nazi moderates. there are moderates in any political spectrum. he is a creature of the regime. jenna: jim, your final thoughts on this. >> yeah. i'd love to be able to get some points in here on this. his policy, and he would acknowledge this, repeatedly has called for the bombing of iran, so it's no shock to me that suddenly when there's a chance that there mi

controversy. i'm not certain that is all of it. the president's approval rating on the economy in this poll is 42 approve, 57 disapprove, and as you know a lot of young people are getting out of school and not being able to find a job, and a large number of kids who get out of college are moving back in with their families. i think this is more than just nsa, it may be the economy, it may be the overall perception of the president. the other interesting note in the poll was that for the first time he was viewed by the american people as not honest and trustworthy. 49% said that phrase applies to him. 50% says it does not a my to him. that could be another thing, because young people had such -- he was such an aspirational figure to younger voters and younger americans and if there is agreeing perception that he's not shooting straight with him, that he's not honest and trustworthy that could be very close not only among young people but among all voters. jon: isn't that perhaps the bigger problem i mean for him? because it's one thing to have your job approval rating kind of bounce up

, ben bernanke didn't even say that much. what he said was that if the economy continues to grow at the pace that it is he may start trimming that bond-buying program by the end of the year. not that he's going to stop it all together. not that they're going to sell their enormous balance sheet. nothing like that. they just may start trimming it. that sent the market absolutely reeling. and it shows you that this unprecedented program that has been started by ben bernanke, the dismount from this, isn't going to be pretty. >> let's look at this a different way. if bernanke is talking about easing off the stimulus even a little bit, d ton that mean the economy is improving? isn't there some good news here? >> it's true. it does mean that. but if you look around the funds are better but they're not that strong. we got some jobs numbers today that were pretty good, some housing numbers, existing home sales that were good. but the problem is that as he gets out, people sell bonds, interest rates go up, that will hurt the housing market because that's been one of the main things that has help
